Others’ Stories

Below are some stories from other women talking about how to tell your husband you’re pregnant. In fact, it is always good to find a way of combining whichever method you choose for breaking the news to your husband into his daily routines.


When I was pregnant with my second child, I needed to break the news to my husband in a very memorable way, so I made a large chocolate cookie with a combination of blue and pink colors with the words, I'm pregnant boldly written on it.



When I found out I was pregnant with my first child, I told my husband I just did something that would overshoot the budget. I asked for a paper so we could adjust the budget, and instead of a pen I handed him the ETP. At first he thought it must be a highlighter, but he later understood what it was and couldn't hide his excitement.



We made two custom shirts when we discovered I was pregnant. My husband's shirt said, I have a pea in the pod with a small arrow facing down, while mine said, I have a bun in her oven with a small arrow pointing towards me.



I announced my pregnancy to my husband by giving him a coupon with the words, Redeemable for one Baby-Available Feb., 2010. He was short of words, but he couldn't contain his excitement. We haven't told anyone yet until we see the doctor. So I just have to maintain a sealed lips for some weeks.
